A rainbow of colours in the late August garden.

When I looked through the kitchen window this morning I realised how many colours there were in the garden today and the ‘Sing a Rainbow’ song popped into my head and I have been humming it all day…….
I thought you might like to see a few of the different flowers still doing really well despite the not too good weather this summer……
RED……….

…….and YELLOW…….

…….and PINK…….

……and GREEN

…….PURPLE…..

….and ORANGE…….

……and BLUE……..

…(Altogether now)….Sing a rainbow…….

Doesn’t it make you feel better? :o))))
